some big sales but some of it was because of super storm sandy. our phil lebeau is behind t wheel in chicago. >> we knew this would be a better than expected november and look at these numbers. generally speaking with a few exceptions, all of the automakers reported better than expected results last month. gm being one of the exceptions, being just a little bit below expectations. what did we see last month? the sales pace is going to come in probably about 15.2 million, first time over 15 million since early '08. we talked about sandy helping sales. there was also the economy. ford talked about that during the conference call today. ford raised its q1 production by 11% to 750,000 vehicles. compare that to the story of general motors. this worries people from today's auto sales results. gm warning it may cut truck production due to inventory build-up. they're at 139-day supplies of pick-up trucks. some of that is because they built up earlier this year for transition into a new truck. they've been targeting 80 to 85 days truck production. 139 days concerns a number of people. one

to fill jobs in their second and third sits. phil lebeau is live with more with this fascinating shifts. >> they say, there's no way. if people want a job, they should be able to find one. really? they found many places where they're trying to hire like here. go to indiana where if you look at the state unemployment rate, yes, it has come down from the peak of 10.8% back in 2009 but it's still above the national rate at 8%. we wjt down to bloomfield, indiana, which is just south of bloomington, and down there is metal technologies incorporated. this is an auto parts supplier. they make oil pans that then go on to top tier suppliers. they have four to seven job openings that they cannot fill. they struggle to fill their second and third shifts. part of it is because they can't find people with skills. part of it is because they've offered jobs to people who have said, no, thanks, i'll stay on unemployment. >> it seems like with the unemployment as high as it has been it shouldn't be hard, but we have situations where people either aren't interested in working or they don't fit our our ne
cars few in the industry have ever seen. phil lebeau is in chicago. i guess essentially, phil, the europeans are taking a leap out of the americans' book. they used to scoff that the american automakers would offer. now it's par for the course. >> especially in december. it used to be lexus, but mercedes-benz was looking for offers in november. this is an increase compared to october, up 42% for bmw, 26% for mercedes, lexus up 3%. what's going on here? let's start with bmw. their holiday deals now include up to five months of no payments. that's the kind of stuff you used to hear from chevy or from ford. by the way, bmw sales surged 45% last month. mercedes leads bmw year-to-date by just under 1,900 vehicles. it last led the u.s. luxury sales in '99. it really wants the title again. at the core of what's happening between these two german automakers, they need strong sufficient sales to offset the weakness they're seeing in europe. that's why their production has been ramped up here at their facilities in the u.s. bmw announced it's on pace to set global sales of more than 1.7
! >>> welcome back to "squawk on the street." i'm phil lebeau with breaking news regarding boeing and the 787 dreamliner. there has been a second dreamliner that has run into problems, once delivered into service, this one solving a cutter airway 787 on delivery from the united states to london. just a few days ago. it has been grounded in london. according to the ceo of cutter qatar airways, he says that the airplane developed a generator failure while in flight. now, it was not an emergency landing but a generator failure is what he says. we've talked with boeing this morning. they say they are aware of the issue. they're not sure it was a generator that failed on the qatar airways 787, but the significance of this is remember on december 4th, it was a united 787 that had to make an emergency landing in new orleans because one of the generators failed on that airplane. there are six on these airplanes. and remember, the 787 was designed to use six generators, electric power so that near nth not using power from the engines, part of the fuel efficiency that goes into the planes. the question
